Guitarist Owen Hughes-Holland comments:

"‘Viking Blood’ is one of the more conceptual songs on the album. It portrays the idea of giving rise to a ruthless Nordic inner spirit that won’t let others get in the way. Fundamentally taking no sh*t from anyone and holding your own. Takeaway: for those daring to be ruthless and standing their ground."

Drawing influence from the likes of Deftones, Tool and Glassjaw, London-based four-piece First Signs Of Frost push boundaries with their unique blend of technical instrumentation, epic soundscapes and anthemic vocal melodies. Forming in 2004 with a line-up consisting of longtime friends Owen Hughes-Holland (vocals/guitar), Adam Mason (guitar), Will Gates (drums) and Dan Oehlman (bass), the band released their consequential debut EP In Our Final Chapter the following year.

In 2007 First Signs of Frost signed their first record deal with Japanese label Zestone Records, and after a successful UK tour supporting metal-core legends Exit Ten, they recruited Daniel Tompkins as their main vocalist. The band then began writing their debut album Atlantic, all whilst securing subsequent tours and major support slots with acts such as Deaf Havana, Enter Shikari, Architects, You Me At Six, and more.

Following a hiatus since the departure of Tompkins in 2009, founding members Owen Hughes-Holland and Adam Mason set out to resurrect the band. With a new lease of life and a fresh line-up, First Signs of Frost moulded their sound into a more groove and ambient direction, manifesting itself in the aptly titled 2017 EP The Shape of Things to Come, via Basick Records. With their well received EP in tow, the band took to the studio in late 2019 to work on their second full-length album, Anthropocene, this time with help of exciting new frontman Ronan Villiers. Now, with the forthcoming single ‘Loss’ in tow, the highly anticipated album following in September will be released through Alaskan Records. 2022 will be yet another landmark year for the progressive post-hardcore pioneers.
